Silent Hill 4: The Room Review

IGN Entertainment
11 March 2010
  • Conclusion: While there were definitely some changes to the game that I didn’t care much for, such as the lack of radio/flashlight combo, perhaps the alterations were a good thing for the series overall. Not too many titles can continue to strike fear in the mind of gamers by following the same exact formula. Thankfully, Silent Hill 4: The Room manages to pack in plenty of bone chilling frights and the same core gameplay that it is known for.

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: The Silent Hill series is the only entertainment that has ever truly scared me. Ever since I first took a trip to the other school in the original Silent Hill, I've been a sucker for Konami's franchise. Silent Hill 4: The Room stumbles in some regards, but overall it's a good game that had me plugging on despite the controls simply because I was genuinely interested in seeing the story resolve itself.

  • Excerpt: If you read my recent preview, I was enthusiastic as hell about it. The gameplay was updated, the game was genuinely scary, there were interesting puzzles to solve that were centered around the game's new dynamic, and it still felt like Silent Hill . There were only a few levels in the early build, but they were enough to get me really excited. I haven't quite made up my mind about Silent Hill 4: The Room yet.

Xbox Gazette

  • Conclusion: Silent Hill 4 : The Room ne convainc pas et ne surprend pas comme avaient si bien su le faire ses prédécesseurs, Silent Hill 2 en tête. Il s'avère donc être un jeu où les émotions, le stress et surtout la peur ne sont pas présent ou alors dans une proportion très faible, même comparé à Silent Hill 3 qui n'a pourtant pas eu très bonne presse. Conçu en peu de temps (annoncé en janvier 2004) Silent Hill 4 est l'épisode de trop, celui qui n'apporte rien à la série.
  • Pros: régression graphique par rapport au second épisode, champs de jeu peu vaste, manque de tension
  • Cons: bande son toujours aussi excellente, combats beaucoup plus agréables, durée de vie (plusieurs fins), la modélisation des personnages

  • Conclusion: 14 /20 Silent Hill 4 : The Room n’est pas vraiment la révolution que tous les fans de survival horror attendaient mais au final, il s’impose tout de même grâce à ses quelques innovations et ses nombreux points positifs. Un jeu réussi sans plus, qui aurait pu terminer la série de bien meilleure manière mais qui aura au moins le mérite de vous plonger au beau milieu de l’horreur.
  • Pros: Graphismes superbes, Plus long que ses prédécesseurs, Quelques innovations sympas, Une ambiance terrible, Bande son excellente
  • Cons: Maniabilité moyenne, Peut-être trop tourné action, Parfois lourd

  • Conclusion: Zugegeben hatte ich vom vierten Silent Hill -Teil ein wenig mehr erwartet. Tradition in allen Ehren, aber was die Entwickler hier abgeliefert haben, verdient schon die Anschuldigung "1:1-Kopie". Neuerungen suchen Fans mit der Lupe. Jedoch machen die Ausflüge mit Henry eine Menge Spaß und fesseln bereits nach kurzer Zeit an den Bildschirm.
